Web Exclusive: Marissa Powell on Religion
Miss Utah Marissa Powell discusses her LDS Faith.
Shauna Lake: Did you talk about your religion at all while you were there? Was that an anomaly, something that drew a conversation?
Marissa Powell: I think a lot of people wanted to know. I think they just assume you're from Utah so you must be Mormon. And I am Mormon so it was something that I had the opportunity to talk about a little bit and branch out. And they all had funny questions and it’s fun to answer them.
Shauna Lake: What were the funny questions?
Marissa Powell: There were some about do you drink milk how many wives does your father have. How many girlfriends does your boyfriend have? And just silly things like that. It’s a good opportunity to talk about who I am and what I believe and to branch out like that and hear what other people believe and why they believe what they believe.
